Ecole Internationale de Genève – La Grande Boissière

La Grande Boissière campus is the largest of Ecolint’s three sites and is centrally located in Geneva in pleasant wooded grounds, easily accessible via public transport.

The campus blends a charming mix of old and new buildings, including an 18th century château and a new, ultra-modern Arts centre providing exceptional facilities for the creative, visual and performing arts. A recently opened STEM centre, designed in collaboration with EPFL, gives students access to the very latest science and technology equipment.

Our Primary, Middle and Secondary schools all benefit from well-equipped libraries, media centres, extensive ICT facilities, assembly halls and recreational areas tailored to the needs of each age group.

Top quality sports facilities allow us to offer an excellent Physical Education programme as well as a wide variety of recreational and competitive sports.

Ecolint is a fully inclusive school, and very proud to have Geneva’s only dedicated pedagogical programme for children with moderate to severe learning difficulties, with over 50 specialist educators trained to help with a full range of differences.
